Description praveenp 2010-03-02 15:36:58 UTC
Malayalam unicode characters has almost thrice the size of Latin characters and almost all our characters are ligatures and/or with vowel symbols. So we roughly gets 40 or 50 characters saved, and edit summary gets broken frequently.

PS. All Indic language wikipedias are facing same problem.
